Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a misfire diagnostic device for a multi-cylinder internal combustion engine.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art As a conventional misfire diagnostic apparatus for a multi-cylinder internal combustion engine, a crank angle sensor detects a crank angle of 720 ° / n (n
For each cylinder) and continuously measure the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the combustion state of each cylinder, and determine the presence or absence of misfire according to these fluctuation states based on the cycle of the continuously measured reference signal. There are some that have been decided (actual Kaihei 5-171
72 specification).

[0003]

However, when the misfire diagnosis is performed according to the fluctuation state of the cycle of the reference signal, the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the combustion state of each cylinder is as follows.
Even if the engine operating condition is constant, not only the presence or absence of misfire, but also the influence of mechanical variations such as the ring gear that constitutes the crank angle sensor, the influence of variations in the input circuit such as the electromagnetic pickup, There is a problem in that accurate misfire diagnosis cannot be performed unless these effects are removed because of the influence of combustion variations.

In view of such conventional problems, it is an object of the present invention to improve the accuracy of misfire diagnosis by learning mechanical variations among cylinders and the like.

[0005]

For this reason, the present invention is constructed as shown in FIG. That is, the crank angle is 720 °
/ N (n is the number of cylinders), a reference signal generating means A for generating a reference signal including a cylinder discrimination signal, and a cycle measuring means B for measuring the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the combustion state of each cylinder. And a misfire determination means C for determining whether or not there is a misfire in each cylinder based on the cycle of the reference signal.

Between the cycle measuring means B and the misfire determining means C, the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the combustion state of each cylinder obtained by the cycle measuring means B is corrected by a correction coefficient for each cylinder. Cycle correction means D that corrects and causes the misfire determination means C to make a determination based on the corrected cycle
To provide. Then, a fuel cut detection means E for detecting that the fuel is being cut to the engine, and when the fuel is being cut, the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the preset combustion state of the learning representative cylinder Calculate the amount of change at a crank angle of 720 °, divide this amount of change by the number of cylinders,
Inclination amount calculation means F for calculating the inclination amount, the cycle actually measured between the crank angles of 720 ° for each cylinder, and the inclination amount in the cycle of the learning representative cylinder at the beginning of the crank angle of 720 °. And a correction coefficient setting means G for setting a correction coefficient for each cylinder based on the calculated ratio, which is calculated by adding the product of the number of cylinders counted from the learning representative cylinder.

[0007]

In the above structure, prior to the misfire determination,
The cycle TINT i of the reference signal measured as corresponding to the combustion state of each cylinder is set to the correction coefficient KTINT for each cylinder.
By correcting with i , it is possible to avoid mechanical variations between cylinders.

For this reason, the correction coefficient KTINT for each cylinder is learned by learning the mechanical variations among the cylinders when the fuel is cut off.
Set i . This learning will be described with reference to FIG. Note that FIG. 5 is an example of a four-cylinder internal combustion engine, and the ignition sequence is # 1.
→ # 3 → # 4 → # 2. While the fuel is being cut, the change amount ΔTINT = TINT 4 −TINT 0 at the crank angle 720 ° of the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the preset combustion representative cylinder # 1 of the multiple cylinders is calculated. Divide the amount of change ΔTINT by the number of cylinders n = 4,
The gradient X = ΔTINT / 4 is calculated.

Then, for each cylinder (# 3, # 4, # 2), the cycle TINT i actually measured between the crank angles of 720 ° and the learning representative cylinder # at the beginning of the crank angle of 720 ° # In the cycle TINT 0 of 1, the inclination amount X
And a theoretical cycle obtained by adding the product of the number i of cylinders counted from the learning representative cylinder to each other, and the correction coefficient KTINT i for each cylinder is set based on this ratio.

Specifically, the following equation is obtained. [For # 3 Cylinder] KTINT 1 = (TINT 0 + 1 · X) / TINT 1 [For # 4 Cylinder] KTINT 2 = (TINT 0 + 2 · X) / TINT 2 [For # 2 Cylinder] KTINT 3 = (TINT 0 + 3 · X) / TINT 3

[0011]

EXAMPLE An example of the present invention will be described below. 4
In a cylinder internal combustion engine, the ignition sequence is # 1 → # 3 → # 4 → # 2
And FIG. 2 shows the system configuration. The control unit 10 has a built-in microcomputer, performs arithmetic processing based on signals from various sensors, and has a fuel injection valve 2 provided for each cylinder (# 1 to # 4) of the engine 1.
And controlling the operation of the ignition coil 3.

A crank angle sensor 11, an air flow meter 12, an idle switch 13 and the like are provided as the various sensors. Crank angle sensor 11
By outputting a reference signal for each 180 ° and a unit signal for each unit crank angle (1 to 2 °), the crank angle can be detected and the engine speed N can be detected. Further, the reference signal includes a cylinder discrimination signal. For example, by increasing the pulse width of the reference signal corresponding to the # 1 cylinder,
Cylinder discrimination is possible. The crank angle sensor constitutes a reference signal generating means.

The air flow meter 12 is, for example, a hot wire type,
The intake air flow rate Q can be detected. Idle switch 13
Is turned on by detecting the fully closed position of the throttle valve. Here, the control unit 10 determines the basic fuel injection amount Tp = K based on the intake air flow rate Q and the engine speed N.
・ Q / N (K is a constant) is calculated, and various corrections are applied to this to obtain the final fuel injection amount Ti = Tp · COEF (COFF
Various correction coefficients), and a drive pulse signal having a pulse width corresponding to Ti is output to the fuel injection valve 2 of each cylinder at a predetermined timing synchronized with the engine rotation to perform fuel injection. However, when decelerating, the idle switch 13 is ON,
Moreover, when the engine speed N is equal to or higher than a predetermined fuel cut speed, the output of the drive pulse signal to the fuel injection valve 2 is stopped and the fuel cut is performed. This fuel cut is canceled when the engine speed N becomes lower than a predetermined recovery speed or the idle switch 13 is turned off.

The control unit 10 also determines the ignition timing based on the engine speed N and the basic fuel injection amount Tp, and controls the operation of the ignition coil 3 at that timing.
Ignite. Further, the control unit 10 determines whether or not there is a misfire in each cylinder in accordance with the misfire diagnosis routine shown in FIGS. 3 to 4, and issues a warning by a warning lamp or the like in a predetermined case.

Regarding the misfire diagnosis routine shown in FIGS. 3 to 4,
This will be described with reference to FIG. This routine is executed in synchronization with the generation of the reference signal from the crank angle sensor. In step 1 (denoted as S1 in the figure; the same applies hereinafter), the time-measured value of the timer is read and set as TINT. This timer started 0 in the previous routine, and the period TINT of the reference signal is measured by this. Therefore, this portion corresponds to the period measuring means.

In step 2, the timer is reset and
Start 0. In step 3, cylinder discrimination is performed.
In step 4, it is determined whether or not fuel is being cut. This portion corresponds to the fuel cut detection means. When the fuel is being cut, the process proceeds to step 5, and when the fuel is not being cut, the process proceeds to step 11.

[While fuel is being cut] In step 5, the cycle TINT i of the reference signal measured as corresponding to the combustion state of each cylinder is temporarily stored according to the cylinder discrimination result. That is, assuming that the learning representative cylinder is # 1, the cycle when the cylinder is determined to be # 3 cylinder is TINT 1
The cycle when the cylinder is discriminated as # 4 cylinder is stored as TINT 2 , the cycle when the cylinder is discriminated as # 2 cylinder is stored as TINT 3 , and the cycle when the cylinder is discriminated as # 1 cylinder is stored. Store the cycle as TINT 4 . Also, when TINT 4 is newly stored, the TI
The value of NT 4 is stored as TINT 0 .

In step 6, it is judged whether or not a new value of TINT 4 is obtained, and when it is obtained, the process proceeds to step 7. In step 7, the change amount ΔTINT = at the crank angle of 720 ° in the cycle of the reference signal corresponding to the combustion state of the learning representative cylinder # 1 based on the cycle measurement result at the time of fuel cut.
TINT 4 −TINT 0 is calculated, and this is calculated as the number of cylinders n = 4.
Is calculated by dividing by (see the following equation). Therefore, this portion corresponds to the inclination amount calculating means.

X = (TINT 4 −TINT 0 ) / 4 In step 8, for each cylinder, the cycle TINT i (i = 1 to 1) actually measured during the crank angle of 720 °.
3), and the number of cylinders i (i = 1 to 1) counted from the inclination X and the learning representative cylinder # 1 in the cycle TINT 0 of the learning representative cylinder # 1.
3) and the ratio to the theoretical period obtained by adding the product of the two, and the correction coefficient KTINT i for each cylinder (i = 1 to 1)
3) is set (see the following equation). Therefore, this portion corresponds to the correction coefficient setting means.

KTINT i = (TINT 0 + i · X) / TINT i Specifically, the following is obtained. For # 3 cylinder: KTINT 1 = (TINT 0 + 1 · X) / TINT 1 For # 4 cylinder: KTINT 2 = (TINT 0 + 2 · X) / TINT 2 For # 2 cylinder: KTINT 3 = (TINT 0 + 3 · X) / TINT 3 Since the # 1 cylinder is the learning representative cylinder, K
TINT 0 = KTINT 4 = 1 and no calculation is required.

In step 9, the engine speed N is read.
In step 10, the cylinder-specific correction coefficient KTINT i corresponding to the current engine speed N area is read from the cylinder-specific correction coefficient map for each cylinder, and the cylinder-specific correction coefficient KTINT i is updated according to the following equation. KTINT i-new = (1 / a) KTINT i + (1-
1 / a) · KTINT i-old In this equation, KTINT i on the right side is the value calculated in step 8, KTINT i-old on the right side is the value read from the map, and KTINT i-new on the left side is to be written in the map. This is the updated value.

Then, the updated result is written in the cylinder-specific correction coefficient map for each cylinder. [When fuel is not being cut] In step 11, in the case of four cylinders, the five latest values (T1 to T5) of the cycle of the reference signal are stored, and the misfire determination is performed based on these values. Replace the period used.

T5 ← T4, T4 ← T3, T3 ← T2, T2 ← T1 In step 12, it is determined whether or not learning has been completed (at least one learning is completed). If learning is not performed at all, the process proceeds to step 13, and the latest measured period TINT i is set as T1 as it is, and the step
Go to 20. If the learning is performed even once, the process proceeds to step 14.

In step 14, the engine speed N is read,
Determine the area. In step 15, it is determined whether or not it is a learned area, and if it is a learned area, the process proceeds to step 16. In step 16, the cylinder-specific correction coefficient KTINT i corresponding to the area of the engine speed N at the present time is read from the cylinder-specific correction coefficient map of the cylinder for which the cylinder is determined.

In the case of an unlearned area, step 17
Go to and read the data of the learned area that is close to it, and multiply it by a coefficient K1 that is inversely proportional to the engine speed N,
The correction coefficient KTINT i for each cylinder is set by calculation. In step 18, the cycle TIN of the most recently measured reference signal
The T i is corrected by cylinder correction coefficient KTINT i, to obtain a corrected period HTINT i (see the following equation). Therefore, this portion corresponds to the period correction means.

HTINT i = TINT i × KTINT i In step 19, the corrected cycle HTINT i is set to T1, and the process proceeds to step 20. In step 20, the misfire determination value MISA is calculated from the latest five values (T1 to T5) of the cycle of the reference signal according to the following equation. It should be noted that T1 indicates the current cycle of the misfiring determination target cylinder whose cylinder is currently determined, and T5 indicates the cycle one cycle before that cylinder.

MISA = [3 × (T4−T5) + (T4
-T1)] / T5 3 At step 21, the misfire determination value MISA is compared with the reference value SL, and if MISA ≧ SL, the routine proceeds to step 22 to determine misfire. Therefore, steps 20 to 22 correspond to misfire determination means. The reference value SL for misfire determination is preferably set in accordance with a map having the engine speed N and the basic fuel injection amount Tp as parameters.

Further, as the misfire determination value, the MIS mentioned above is used.
The following MISB can be used instead of A. MISB = [2 × (T3-T5) + 2 × (T3-T
1)] / T5 3 For this MISB, the latest three values (MISB
1 to MISB3) are stored, and as a misfire determination value,
The following MISC may be used.

MISC = MISB2-MISB3 For these misfire determination values, MISB ≧ predetermined value, M
If ISC ≧ predetermined value, it is determined as misfire. Also, when it is determined that there is a misfire, of course, to determine the misfiring cylinder,
An alarm or the like should be issued according to the number of consecutive times.

[0030]

As described above, according to the present invention, accurate misfire diagnosis can be performed without being affected by mechanical variations among cylinders, variations in sensor input circuit, combustion variations among cylinders, and the like. The effect is obtained.
